- Washers from hardware store, ranging in size 1.5” to 2” diameter. I picked heavier ones made from stainless steel.
- Nail polish
- Yarn, baker’s twine or suede rope
- Beads. We used small glass seed beads, and then larger wooden beads and plastic berry beads.
- Sewing needles. We used the larger size tapestry needles, and one size down from that. If you get a mixed pack you will have choices.
Start by painting the washers. It is better to use a lot of the polish. You almost have to pour it on (but don’t) and then spread it out with the brush. We only painted the top and tried not to let it run off the sides.
After the washers are dry, it’s time to string and bead them. This is where you can get really creative. The possibilities are endless!
The hardest part is getting the string through the needle. Beyond that, these really are very easy to make.
